FUNDED POSTDOCTORAL POSITION with emphasis on advanced image analysis
techniques, single particle tracking and/or neural plasticity modeling is available for a highly motivated candidate at Washington University School of Medicine.

lab dedicated to studying (1) the mechanisms of synaptic transmission at individual synapses and (2) the role of rapid synaptic plasticity in information processing by individual synapses and neural circuits. Several current projects have translational emphasis on the dysfunction in information processing in neurological disorders such as mental retardation and Alzheimer’s. The lab utilizes cutting-edge imaging and electrophysiological tools in combination with sophisticated image analysis and computational techniques to approach these questions. More information can be found on the lab web site:
Successful candidates will be in charge of the computational aspects of these projects and will be able to combine them with experimental approaches if desired. Qualified applicants are expected to hold a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in physics, engineering or life sciences, have extensive experience in image/data analysis techniques and computational/statistical methods. In depth knowledge of Matlab is essential.
Trainees will work in a highly interactive multidisciplinary research environment at Washington University, which has been consistently ranked among the top five Medical Research Centers in the country. Highly competitive salary and benefits are available and will commensurate with experience. A salary supplement of up to 55-57k/year is available on a competitive basis through the Hope Center Fellowship Program
